7:03 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the wet parts of california under a state of emergency, because of an explosive and deadly wildfire. crews are struggling this morning to contain the valley fire. one person has been killed and the fire has destroyed 400 acres, that's 78 square miles. >> the valley fire is one of 12 burning across the dry california landscape. danielle nottingham is in a town devastated by the flames. middletown is 30 miles north of napa valley. danielle, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i'm surrounded by the rubble of what was a 50-unit apartment complex here in middletown. it's just one of hundreds of buildings destroyed by the valley fire. fire officials say they haven't seen land scorched at this rate of speed in 30 years.
7:04 am
>> i saw it coming and said let's get out of here. >> reporter: hamid heidary returned on sunday to find the apartment complex he lived in burned to the ground. the remnants still smoldering. >> it's hard to believe what is going on. i've never seen devastation like this. >> reporter: less than 24 hours earlier flames engulfed the complex as the wildfire raced into the heart of this town of 1300. entire blocks of houses burned to the ground. >> it's just utter chaos. there's nothing like it. >> reporter: as people scramble to evacuate the area, many say scenes like this surrounded by fire at every turn. >> it was traffic for days, people just grabbing everything they could, bags, just throwing them on the roofs of the car. >> reporter: the flames moved so quickly they surprised even seasoned fire officials. >> as we see right now to our left, we better step back. >> reporter: the fire erupted saturday afternoon and grew
7:05 am
quickly thanks to the drought-parched forest and strong erratic winds that reached up to 30 miles per hour. >> there was no stopping it. you couldn't get in the way. you had to get out of the way. >> reporter: the devastation became all too apparent on sunday. businesses, homes now just rubble. >> we are fairly certain that we've lost our home. >> reporter: dwayne harper is one of many people that can only wait until the evacuation order is lifted to find out if his house is still standing. what's it like not knowing for sure? >> we would like to know. it would be -- some closure. >> reporter: the governor of california has declared a state of emergency in napa and lake counties. more than 1400 firefighters are battling the valley fire. it's burning so close to populated areas it's now the state's top priority. >> danielle, thank you. the defiant county clerk in kentucky is back on the job for the first time since going to jail. kim davis spoke to a crowd
7:06 am
gathered to support her cause. >> the decisions i have made in this case and the decisions i will continue to make in this case are mine and mine alone. i don't want to have this conflict. i don't want to be in the spotlight. and i certain lly don't want toe a living post. >> we are live with jericka duncan now with more. good morning, jericka. >> reporter: good morning. earlier today seven law enforcement officials surrounded kim davis as she stood next to her son who is a deputy clerk here. kim davis delivered a six-minute speech and at times was very emotional. returning to work for the first time, kim davis spoke adamantly about her choice to continue rejecting same sex couples applying for marriage licenses. >> effective immediately, any
7:07 am
marriage license issued by my office will not be issued or authorized by me. >> reporter: outside the courthouse this morning, davis said her decision was one based on her faith and her conscience. >> i am no hero. i am just a person who has been transformed by the grace of god who wants to work and be with my family. zbl >> reporter: last week a federal judge released davis from behind bars on the condition she should not interfere with the clerks issuing the licenses. >> i just want to give god the glory. his people have rallied and you are a strong people! >> reporter: thousands cheered on the county clerk but not everyone is giving her a hero's welcome. over the weekend this billboard defending same sex marriage popped up near the county courthouse, it reads, dear kim davis, the fact you can't sell your daughter for three goats and a cow means we already redefined marriage.
7:08 am
the nonprofit organization planting peace paid for the ad. >> we're trying to send a message that will inspire her to think through this, to recognize that she is acting as an agent of the government. if she can't fulfill this duty, she needs to resign. >> reporter: at least one same sex couple is expected to come here today to ask for her marriage license. davis still has her doubts about whether the documents issued by her deputy clerks are valid without her validation. she feels she must issue these without being thrown into jail and she will not take action against them. >> thank you so much. a cbs new poll out this morning shows democratic voters are split over whether joe biden should enter the 2016 campaign. the battleground tracker poll measures three early voting states, iowa, new hampshire and south carolina. nearly half of south carolina democrats think the vice president should run. but most democrats in new
7:09 am
hampshire say biden should stay out. donald trump leads the republican race in all three states. ben carson is running a close second in iowa. nancy cordes is not on the ticket but in washington to show us how the neurosurgeon is challenging the billionaire. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. not only is ben carson running a close second in iowa, but he's also the top second choice candidate. what that means is that roughly one in five gop voters in all three early states say they would back carson if their top choice dropped out. >> ben's a doctor and he's not a deal maker. >> reporter: calling into cbs's "face the nation" on sunday, donald trump fired on ben carson, his closest competitor. >> he's not a dealer, he's not a negotiator and the president -- we have to bring wealth back to our country. ben can't do that. >> reporter: it's part of a recent trend. trump calling out his political insiders. >> people don't have energy. i don't think think ben has the
7:10 am
energy. we need people that are really smart that have tremendous deal-making skills and that have great, great energy. >> i knew that i had the ability -- >> reporter: the soft spoken neurosurgeon declined to comment on trump. >> i think i'll leave that up to others. >> reporter: but he said the country needs someone with humility. >> everyone things they are the best thing. if you are a businessman, only the businessman can solve the problems. ed that's ridiculous. >> reporter: carson is not the only one in trump's cross hairs. >> here's the headline, carly, a surgeon, has 3%. >> now you have this lightweight guy from bobby jindal, a total lightweight. >> reporter: he said rand paul's home state of kentucky is embarrassed by him. >> he's weakened the military. he has no chance. >> reporter: the only one he's praised recently has been former texas governor rick perry after
7:11 am
dropping out of the race on friday. >> he's a nice man and i'm sure he'll have a fantastic future. >> reporter: a new cbs poll shows bernie sanders leading hillary clinton by ten points in iowa and 22 points in new hampshire. >> the american people in my strong view are sick and tired of establishment politics, of establishment economics. >> reporter: but clinton leads by 23 points in south carolina. that's the next state on the primary calendar. and her campaign is counting on southern states like that one to help blunt sanders' momentum. thank you. the company handling hillary clinton's private e-mail server says they have no knowledge that the machine was wiped. according to "the washington post," there's a chance of recovering tens of thousands of deleted e-mails. hillary clinton says she only threw out private e-mails from her time as secretary of state. two high-ranking senators say they want the e-mails to be recovered if at all possible. another new poll this morning shows a majority of
7:12 am
americans disapprove of the way clinton has handled the e-mail controversy. only 42% of democrats in the national poll are backing her now. in july, 63% said they wanted her to be the party's nominee. cbs news political director and "face the nation" moderator john dickerson is in washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> it's clear the e-mail issue is causing great damage. how is it damaging her? >> well, i think two ways, directly and indirectly. on the one hand, people are taking readings from her response to the controversy surrounding e-mail situation and you are taking an unfavorable view of her. thinking she's not honest and trustworthy. but there's a secondary way it hurts her, which is the more the coverage focuses on the e-mail story and the different answers from her, the less chance she has to talk about anything else. the less chance she has to say something exciting and the voters might be able to rally
7:13 am
around. >> what surprises me is the decline in women from 71% in july to 42% now. >> that is striking. one of the cases for the clinton candidacy is in a general election she'll have a special poll on women. so many times i talked to people who said we're going to pull over conservative women who like the fact she's a female candidate. and so that's a shot deep into the base of her support. >> john, are there new signs this morning that joe biden may be considering getting in the race? >> yeah, john, our friend, writes from bloomberg, that joe biden has met with a top obama bunther and clinton supporter. this shows the vice president directly involved in the process of thinking about building a campaign. so if he's waiting to jump into the pool, this is him laying out the swimsuit and the goggles and towel. this is the stuff you would do -- he hasn't made that final decision to jump in, but he's got it all laid out. >> and i guess the other interesting thing that john reports on is that the timetable
7:14 am
may be shifting. biden may get in late october or november. >> yeah. this scenario is sort of waiting for the clinton collapse. so imagining that she continues to have difficulty that her testimony, perhaps on the benghazi matter before congress, doesn't go well. and that it creates a further pull for him to get into the race. the challenge for him, and this will be a channel for any candidate, is to wait that long. once you start looking more and more like you're running, you have the meetings with big fund-raisers, there's a pull. and if he can hold that off, that will be something -- that will be extraordinary. >> we'll be watching. john dickerson, thank you. a man accused of killing a kentucky state trooper is now in custody. the shooting happened late last night on interstate 24 in lyon county 40 miles he's of paducah. joseph cameron ponder was chasing a car during a traffic stop and shot multiple times. police closed the highway
7:15 am
hunting down the suspect that was taken into custody after dawn. lawmakers are expressing concerns over safety of prone francis when he visits the united states next week. authorities disrupted a threat against the pope. he did not get into any specifics. a senior law enforcement official tells cbs news there is no credible threat to the pope and they have seen nothing to indicate there is an issue. several children are among the 30 immigrants who died this weekend when their boat capsized near greece. more refugees arrived on a boat this morning. they are traveling in record numbers. european nations are struggling to cope. germany is tightening its borders. hungary is taking steps to cut off the flow of the migrants. charlie d'agata is along the serbian border. good morning. >> reporter: part of the crackdown means sealing off the border in the next couple of days. up until now, hungarian policy
7:16 am
to cut off the migrants coming here, but they don't want to do that. they don't trust the police. and if you're going to buses, that means being sent off to reception centers and made to register in hungary. but this morning we watched something else happen for the first time. we followed a bus of migrants who were taken to a train station headed to austria straight out of hungary. after the horror stories we heard of getting trapped, a man from damascus was dumbfounded. >> this train goes to austria. and from austria we are going to sweden. >> reporter: so many before him got stuck here for days pressured to register for asylum before traveling onward. >> happy. we are the ones who close the door. yeah. very lucky. i'm really lucky. >> reporter: hungary is about to close the door, harsh new laws went into effect this week to keep the migrants out and they have sent troops to catch anyone
7:17 am
who still manages to get in. we have even seen prison inmates enlisted in a race to finish the razor-wire fence between hungary and serbia. things just got tougher on the other side of their journey, too. german officials who have seen hundreds of thousands of migrants pour into the country say its reaching the limits and decided to temporarily introduce border controls, meaning migrants may be leaving here but not actually able to get there. stuck in the middle again. now what's going to happen when they seal this border? migrants will do what they always do, find another way. however, slovakia and austria will do more for border controls. >> charlie d'agata, thank you so much. the first nfl game for the giants ended with a big loss.
7:18 am
quarterback eli manning is getting much of the blame. they left the giants enough time to score the winning touchdown with just seven seconds to go. and another high-profile match-up, the two top picks met in tampa, number one beat number two. marcus mariotta threw four touchdown passes. and jamis winston saw his first pass intercepted for a touchdown. and both the broncos and chiefs are up 1-0 this morning. they will face-off in kansas city on the season premier of "thursday night football" this week right here on cbs. >> where is it, norah? >> cbs thursday night. tennis superstar novak djokovic has had trouble winning the u.s. open over the years but not last night.
7:19 am
>> novak djokovic is strongest again. >> the world number one player beat the second-seeded roger federer in four sets. in last night's final, they played 42 matches against each other. each of them has won 21 games. >> he's always going to take the best out of you. and that was needed from my side in order to win this trophy. and it was quite an incredible evening for me. >> it was djokovic's second u.s. open victory and the tenth grand slam, double digits, title of his career. we'll talk to novak djokovic in studio 57 coming up ahead on "cbs this morning." charlie, you were there. i felt the loud noise through the tv screen at home. i can't imagine what that was like. >> novak was so good. a number of laser strikes

8:04 am
interview with stephen colbert was something june noek in politics, a very private conversation. i think it's fair to say, similar to conversations he's had privately with his friends and supported, but conducted on national television. that was joe biden that you saw. there was no artifice there. >> that was our reaction. when politicians are so scripted in sound bites, this seemed so authentic, like a private conversation. >> it really was. i think your poll this morning actually is a great illustrator of where this decision is for so many people, and certainly the vice president was candid about the fact that, you know, he hasn't made a decision yet. the poll basically saying, hey, it's not clear. and i think he was clear with stephen colbert that he's not going to run unless he feels like he's ready to be president. >> you know the politicians, you know joe biden and his friends. what the you think he'll do?
8:05 am
>> i know politicians well enough to know that i don't predict that until somebody stands in front of the cameras and says what they're going to do. i was the person who sent an advanced team to south dakota for tom daschle's presidential bid. let's move on to hillary clinton. what do you think is happening there? the poll numbers show she's in big, big trouble including among women voters. >> i think the campaign up to now has been so much referendum on secretary clinton. as we move into this next phase of the campaign, a phase of more engagement where the democrats start having debates, more joint appearances, where the focus really starts becoming the choice, i think is going to be a much better phase and having her the figure of the referendum. i also think in the last week you've seen secretary clinton going to her strengths, the speech on iran, really policy. she has probably produced more detailed policy proposals in
8:06 am
this campaign than any other candidate ranging from substance abuse to college affordability to profit sharing, things that really will make a difference. i think at the end of the day that is the place where she is going to be a strong and effective candidate. >> the latest issue of "the atlantic," says it's a bad sign when your campaign needs a reboot, it's a worse sign when you say, we're going to reboot. >> we've all been there. they get written. you move on. >> this is an interesting year. you look at donald trump and ben carson. is there some sense of the country wanting something very different? >> you know, charlie, i was looking at some of the internals in your poll. it is fascinating the difference between the two political parties when it comes to this issue. if you look at your republicans in iowa, for example, in the cbs poll, a great majority of them
8:07 am
want someone who does not have experience in government. they're much more attracted to the outsider business experience. it's very different for democratic candidates. it speaks to a continued polarization in this country in terms of the parties looking for very different things. there's no doubt that that is a rocket fuel right now for donald trump, for carson, for carly fiorina in that republican primary. >> does it have something to do with sanders? >> i think bernie sanders who is one of the most authentic candidates you can get in a year where authenticity really matters, he is what he is. he's comfortable with his positions. he's had them for a long time and i think people are responding to that. >> on this democratic race. john heilemann of bloomberg reporting there are some advising joe biden he can wait until after the first democratic debate, after hillary clinton's benghazi testimony which is october 22 pd.
8:08 am
do you think joe biden can wait that long, late october, early november? >> i'm not part of those discussions. i think once the debates begin, it becomes an engaged campaign and dialogue begins and you want to be part of that dialogue. to the extent anybody cares about my opinion, i'd say go ahead and get in. >> anita dunn has spoken. thank you for joining us. it took a while. but novak djokovic is u.s. open champion once again. he'll be in studio 57 later this morning. he talks about facing roger,,

8:17 am
i think i kick a little more than most swimmers do. >> ledecky's coach, bruce gemmell knows her stroke well, working with her since 2012 right after she scored her first olympic gold at the london games. at just 15, she was the youngest member of team usa. >> how does katie push past the limits? >> she's got a great training group, mostly boys, and she's willing to compete with them every single day. >> she's swimming with boys, training with guys. >> she's training mostly with the guys, yes. >> does she beat them a fair amount? >> oh, sometimes. >> yes! >> gemmell says it's a mix of training, technique and jn etices that has made ledecky a rare breed. a record setting endurance athlete and a sprinter all in one. >> nobody can win both a sprint and a marathon. and you do that. how have you been able to train
8:18 am
for that? >> i do what bruce said. we have the approach that every race is a sprint, some are longer than others. i think it's a little different approach than most people have. but that's how i swim my races. >> what do you eat? >> i eat whatever my mom makes me. >> ledecky will still be a teenager at that time 2016 games in rio where she could repeat her ledecky slam across a total of seven events. if she does, it will be a feat no other female swimmer has accomplished. >> heading into the olympics in rio, do you feel added pressure? >> no, i don't. i'm just maintaining the same mindset i had going into the olympics and olympic trials. whatever happens, happens. >> come on. no pressure? >> no, not at all. the great thing is i have a great support system around me with my family. everybody is there to support

involves getting as deep into the head of the person as possible, and someone who did what he did. you know there are some places you have to go, but i don't know. something about what happened with ashley smith that is inspired me. the life she went on to live beyond this event. >> you met with her personally? >> i did. she was on set with us for a lot of the shoot and meeting her and seeing the life she has created after being a meth addict after losing her daughter and her husband had died in a drug-related incident. you know, her life has now turned into beautiful. but she really helped because i didn't get to brian nichols who is serving multiple life sentences. >> she found the humanity in this guy which is very scary. >> i think he went into a state that day that never stopped until he saw the human being that ashley smith was on that day. something about her made his humanity kind of resurface and that is why i believe she didn't

become his fifth victim. >> and thinking about his son. >> and thinking about his son also. the book that they read with each other. it was a human -- the purpose of life. >> what is interesting you really do not know as this day unfolds how it's going to end. >> right. >> true. >> yes. that was a tricky thing. because if you know the story, only took place ten years ago in atlanta. you kind of know how it ended but our job on the film was to keep you on the edge of your seat and the reasons that happened is no one really knows what happened in the seven hours they were in the apartment together. >> let's talk about you and nighting gale. you're the only one on the screen for over 90 minutes nominated for an emmy. how do prepare for that? you moved out of the house. have you a wife and four children. >> i did. i never like to leave them. but this is a guy who had the identity. seven different voices buzzing around in his head, really traumatized guy. i just felt that is not what you
8:40 am
want around your wife and kids so i moved out for the duration of the shoot. >> you required that much focus? >> it did, it did. i think telling the truth costs as an actor. i really don't know how to do that. so yeah, you know, you got to go in hard. brian nichols, that left me feeling pretty hallowed out after playing that role as well. >> you got so into the role, people didn't even know he was british. you're pretending to be british? >> yes. >> nicely done. >> thank you. >> nice to have you here. great to see you. come back again.
